For His Glory

Speaker: Antonio Rael
Date: December 30, 2018

Opening Scripture: 1 Peter 4:7-11

 

7 The end of all things is at hand; therefore be self-controlled and sober-minded for the sake of your prayers. 8 Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. 9 Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. 10 As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace: 11 whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

11. 1 Peter 4:7-11   7 The end of all things is at hand; therefore be self-controlled and sober-minded for the sake of your prayers. 8 Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. 9 Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. 10 As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace: 11 whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

 

12. “Returning to a more literal description of this process, remember that glory refers to all of God’s perfections, such as His love, grace, goodness. For us to glorify God is to be holy as He is holy, good as He is good, loving as He is loving.  To glorify God is to image Him.” - John Frame

 

13. How do I glorify God in this situation?

 

14. “One evidence that we are truly in Christ is that we make His glory, and therefore the glory of the triune God, our chief end in life. As we pursue His glory and seek to lovingly obey Him in all things, we can be sure that we have been declared righteous in Him by faith alone and that all of creation will know that we are His on the last day. That vindication will be sweet indeed as we enjoy His blessed presence forever.” - Ligonier Ministries

 

15. “May the lamb that was slain, receive the reward of His suffering.”
